Site security

Yet another b* site that has overhauled its site (Coop supercard) & I can't get onto without detailing the colour of my underwear, a scan of my footprint & sending an sms to my dinosaur phone which is covered in dust & is sprouting grey hair. What is it with these sites that have to know your entire life history just to see how many points you have which aren't enough anyway to buy a tampon? Lose your phone & you are cut off from your entire banking, shopping & general online second life like a circumsized elephant with a blindfold walking over hot coals. All I want is something to grate carrots without my fingernails going into the meal. Is it too much to ask these days?

Re: Site security

Hilarious! Sounds as bad as logging on to my Post Finance account! I guess you'll just have to order from the back of the supercard primes catalogue.

Pay cash? (In an other shop, of course)

It took me years to even find out one can check the points via internet and do all kinds of stuff there. Shortly after my big enlightenment the website turned very demanding, as you described.
I can't be bothered, they always kindly tell me when I can pay my wine or my meat or what ever it is that day with superpoints.
And anyway, I only got that card because my ex forgot to take it with him

That would involve going out which is something I try to avoid.

In that case you should go on Coop site weekly - they're just checking whether you are still alive, half way sane etc.

just wipe
?? Just wipe what? Even FB knows what bras I bought last week on bonprix. I don't know why I have to keep on inputting such details. And my cookies are cleaned regularly.
Actually I have been trying to work out when I last went out further than the garden & it must be a few weeks 'cos I can't remember. I expect it was to Landi to buy fruit juice .

"still alive, half way sane" (double quoting is beyond me) .. that boat has sailed, matey.

Apolgies - meant whether the Coop (or potentially other related web-sites) might just swipe me, because of precisely these shopping habits.

Or if some such algorithms will also affect my dating life. I'd be devastated if it could have an effect on my Coop Super-points.

Re: Site security

The more the seller knows about you the better. For them. As long as people keep sharing their private details they'll be asked more.

So you don't want to provide these details?

Simples:
Don't. Close browser tab. Done.

In related news, Google will no longer read your email (they were doing it to channel ads that you may be interested in).

AFAIK the points accumulate regardless and you can check the balance at every cashier.

With that said I don't understand how people can give up a significant portion of their privacy for about 0.5% of their groceries' worth in the first place.

You wear underwear?

I'll have to have a kinky fantasy about another forum member now instead. Who likes maple syrup and whipped cream?

Only when I go out & that's the only time my phone gets switched on too. So at least if the cops localise me, I will have my undies on.


This lady suggests you grate your nuts. How did I live without it all these years?
